Another Woman Hospitalized After Botched Late Term Abortion in Controversial Germantown Clinic
Another patient of Germantown abortionist, LeRoy Carhart had to be hospitalized after a botched late term abortion today. This is the third patient this year that needed to be rushed to Shady Grove Hospital for emergency treatment.
Video from the scene was posted by a pro-life activist Cheryl Sullenger.
According to Operation Rescue:
On Tuesday at 11:45 a.m., an ambulance arrived at Germantown Reproductive Health Services and loaded a women for transport to the SGH emergency room. Sources inform Operation Rescue that the women underwent emergency surgery at the hospital.
Video taken by a local pro-life activist showed a woman covered head-to-toe in a sheet and that neither Carhart nor any of his staff accompanied the injured woman from the clinic to the ambulance.
In February a 29 year old teacher named Jennifer Morbelli died after complications from a botched 33 week abortion performed by Carhart. Complaints were filed with the Maryland Medical Board but they decided to take no action despite warnings that Carhart’s practice was not equipped to provide the necessary care often needed during and after late term abortion procedures.
“We told everyone who would listen that if Carhart was not disciplined, he would injure or kill again. We take no pleasure in saying, ‘We told you so,’” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “The Maryland Board of Physicians is partially responsible for the most recent abortion injuries suffered by women who were left vulnerable by them to Carhart’s shoddy practices. Late-term abortions are too dangerous to take place in outpatient clinics such as Germantown Reproductive Health Services, especially when abortionists like Carhart are incapable of providing continuity of care in the event of increasingly frequent life-threatening complications.”
Carhart’s clinic has been performing the controversial procedures in Maryland for three years now.
The Maryland Coalition for Life, which has partnered with Operation Rescue to expose abortion abuses, will hold a rally on Sunday, December 8 at 2pm outside Germantown Reproductive Health Services to mark 3 years since the arrival of Leroy Carhart in Maryland. The rally will memorialize the thousands of lives lost to abortion and celebrate the 125 lives that have been saved from abortion by Carhart over the past 3 years. The rally will be followed by a 1.2 mile prayer walk around the heart of Germantown.
